Hope Hicks meets with NY prosecutors investigating Trump

March 08, 2023

Hicks and her lawyer, Robert Trout, spent several hours inside the Manhattan district attorney’s office and, afterward, were seen walking to a waiting SUV. The district attorney’s office also declined comment and would not confirm prosecutors interviewed Hicks, who was previously questioned in 2018 by federal prosecutors who looked into the same conduct. ADVERTISEMENTLast week, prosecutors questioned Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, who arranged payments to two women, and Trump’s former political adviser Kellyanne Conway. Court records show that Cohen and Hicks expressed relief to each other that the story did not receive the attention they feared it would. As for the hush-money probe, the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan decided not to prosecute Trump personally over the payments.
